PROS:

-Pretty good suction probably comparable to the Roomba 980 (I’ll refer to it as the 980 from now on).
-Nicely sized dirt bin – maybe 25% bigger than the 980.
-Cleans the floors slightly faster than the 980 thanks to it’s very wide brush and more efficient navigation.
-Cleans hard floors and the tops of carpets very well – The 980 struggled with dog hair on carpets.
-Simple yet effective phone app with the ability to manually drive it.
-Improved lithium ion battery gives good run times – 90 minutes on turbo and 120 minutes on eco.
-Good navigation but not perfect. (see below) Overall a more efficient and smarter cleaning path than the 980 but more likely to get stuck.
-Effectively cleans corners and tight along edges thanks to it’s square front end and the brush is only 1/2″ away from the right edge of the robot.
-$200 cheaper than the 980.
-Less harsh sounding than the 980.
-Lights out vacuuming unlike the 980.
-Smoothly and properly follows along walls where the 980 tends to bump along them much more.

CONS:

-Doesn’t dig out the fine powdery dust and dirt from carpets nearly as well as the 980 due to the brush being designed to only skim the very top of floors.
-“ultra high performance” filter impossible to keep clean unlike the 980’s filter. I ordered Neato’s “high performance” filters and they are much easier to clean off with a seperate vacuum.
-No double pass or edge clean off options like the 980.
-More likely to get stuck in tight places and may require more furniture adjustment than 980.
-No option to change how fast it moves but neither does the 980.
-Imperfect navigation may try backing up walls in tight areas and some corners.
-No auto carpet boost like the 980.
-Exhaust blows almost straight back and may blow dust/hair around behind it.
-Can tend to follow along certain walls and chair/table legs multiple times but the 980 does this too.
-Magnetic boundary strips can be pushed around by the vacuum if you don’t tape them to the floor and they’re an eye sore.
-Already noticeable scratches on side of bumper, scratches on glossy finished dirt bin, and one scratch across the top turret. The 980 is more durable when it comes to scratches.
-Less reliable track record than Roomba although I’ve had no mechanical problems with either so far.
